Memories can be evoked by specific settings, ideas, images, taste or scent; and Maison Martin Margiela in hands with Obscura Magazine have decided to transpire the brand’s Replica Fragrance collection into ideas for 6 different photographers in taking a set of 6 images to solidify their perception on the 6 uniquely different scents.
Celebrating such creations as a photo exhibition titled “Smells Like Memories” held at Amelia Johnson Contemporary in Central, Hong Kong; we went to pay a visit with some friends that night.
With names like Wing Shya, Suki Lui, Martin Cheung, Topaz Leung, Takashi Homma and Hideaki Hamada participating in the collaboration; the works were doubtlessly elegant and of quality. Each of them gave off an especially gentle feeling as well, whether its a depiction of a landscape or a portrait.
Trying out the fragrances, each bottle is labeled carefully with a tag introducing it’s name, period and description. With Beach Walk, Jazz Club and Promenade in the Gardens being titles for the bottles; our favorites was definitely the petal scented Flower Market, the exciting Funfair Evening and the relaxing Lazy Sunday Afternoon. In stores now, evoke your memories with Maison Martin Margiela’s Replica Fragrance Collection for both men and women.
